South african dating service
Like Tinder you swipe right to ‘like’ him/her, and you swipe left to reject.
You can also access your message inbox and have a more in-depth browse of potential matches, much like the OKCupid website – there is a nice consistency between the app and the site that users will enjoy. SC: The left/right swiping, while cute, will definitely result in ‘liking’ at least one person that you didn’t intend to.
Just be wary of who you meet up with and be upfront about what you’re looking for. App: How About We Testing it out: Sheena Bagshawe Age: 25 Occupation: Fashion Assistant ELLE: How does it work?
You select your preferences, namely: male or female, age limit and radius of how far you want to go to meet your match. RJ: Personally I’d like to know a bit more about someone, especially if we don’t have any friends in common. I’ve noticed that there aren’t serious dating tendencies through Tinder though. RJ: There are plenty crazy cats out there with odd requests.
You see matches in your area, you swipe left for ‘no’ and right for ‘yes’. RJ: It’s a straightforward dating app; you see exactly who the people are. I think having specific needs to narrow down your search would help, maybe adding religion, politics or even common interests in the initial search. I chatted to a guy and thought he was great, but when it didn’t translate I called things off. It’s an online dating app and we have all heard stories of fake profiles and so on.

SC: It’s a very simple app to use – the navigation is user-friendly, and the Quickmatch function lets you filter matches based on photo, age and location.
Also, mutual ‘likes’ are not required for direct messaging, so any user can drop you a line if they want. SC: Easy to use, and more importantly, messages are directed to your inbox and not to your device, so unwanted attention is relatively easy to ignore. SC: What I’ve always liked about OKCupid as a dating site is the fact that you are encouraged to investigate a person’s interests and enthusiasms before making a call on whether to ‘like’ or ‘favourite’ their profile. And Murphy’s Law almost always results in them ‘liking’ you in return and sending a barrage of messages to reinforce just how much they like you. SC: Just like other dating apps or websites, it’s fun to play around with and maybe get an ego boost, but as a method for finding a potential partner, it kinda sucks.
